In college, as in all other aspects of 
life, each event leads to the question 
"WHAT IS riEXT m LiriE?" The year 
1989 put this question in the minds of 
many individuals at Louisburg College. 
The decision to come to Louisburg Col- 
lege, be it a student or faculty member, 
began a line of events. Moving away 
from home, leaving old friends and fam- 
ily, establishing new relationships and 
beginning higher education were the 
first steps in the line of events. As the 
year continued each person's choices 
and decisions lead each through the 
unique line of events. The question 
"what is next in line? " also applied to 
the Louisburg College campus. The year 
brought about expansion of the physical 
facilities with the opening of the new au- 
ditorium/theater complex. 

Participation in sports and organiza- 
tions provided students and faculty with 
opportunities to progress along each 
one's line of interest. A varied curriculm 
was an open door leading to many desti- 
nations. So, what is next in line for all 
individuals who are in Louisburg Col-

Dorm Life is not always just working 
on homework, it sometimes involves 
a little clowning around. The dorms 
consists of everything from roasting 
marshmellows, to hall slides. There 
are many activities that go on in the 
dorms that try to involve everyone. An 
example is, Merritt dorms trick or 
treat night which brought in children 
from the community to trick or treat in 
the dorms. Students are able to fix 
their rooms as they would like. This 
Includes everything from lofts to col-

This was a fun year for all the stu- 
dents here at Lou-U. Most of the time, 
their free time is spent just being 
around their friends. The students do 
everything from hacky sack, to play- 
ing with puppies. Sometimes you can 
even find them getting a group to go 
hunting. The students at noght even 
try to attend some of the school activi- 
ties. Over all, this 1988-89 school 
year has been great.

Comedian Mike Veneman entertains Louisburg 
College students at the Comedy Club which, 
was sponsored by the Student Qovemment As-j

Louisburg College's fall semester 
got off to a good start with the combi- 
nation of the Comedy Club and the 
Annual Welcome Dance. Both of 
these events were sponsored by the 
Student Government Association. 
The Comedy Club was co-sponsored 
by Charlie Qoodnights from Raleigh. 
It featured three top comedians; Mike 
Veneman, Steve Qelder, and Tom 
Reder. These guys did a good job of 
entertaining Lou-U students. One 
Louisburg College student stated T 
thought the comedians were hilari-

All who attend enjoy the relaxing sounds of Al 
Wright s ballads as they eat. 

T nis event, along with many others, 
is sponsered by the Christian Life 
Council. Every year the CLC sponsers 
this welcoming event for all students. 
They get together on the steps of the 
Main building and talk and sing to the 
music provided by Al Wright. In 
attendance this year were approxi- 
mately sixty-five people. 

Since then the CLC advisor,Cha- 
plain Sidney Stafford, has helped the 
group organize the election of officers 
and their annual bloodmobiles. It 
seems most students don t have time 
to spare from the busy classloads but 
everyone has time for CLC. They meet 

on Thursday nights at 5:30 in the Blue 
Room of the Duke Cafeteria, so if you 
can make it for dinner you can join 
this service organization and help ev- 
eryone in the surrounding communi- 

Also this year they successfully or- 
ganized mail-outs to the community 
and their biggest event — the Christ- 
mas Party for needy children. Dona- 
tions of toys and money were collect- 
ed from the Louisburg College staff, 
students, and the Louisburg commu- 
nity. Tim Taylor, president, says "CLC 
is where the light on campus shines."

Parents Day 

Parents Day is the one opportunity for 
parents to meet and talk witin the profes- 
sors. It is a time for the students to tell 
their parents what life at Louisburg Col- 
lege is like. The adminstration is avail- 
able to meet the parents also. Upon ar- 
rival, the parents were greeted in the 
Clifton L. Benson Chapel with hot coffee, 
light refreshments, and a warm Louis- 
burg College welcome from the faculty 
and staff. The parents were also invited 
to lunch and afterwards had an opportu- 
nity to discuss the progress of their off- 
spring inside the classroom. Some of 
our students stood with their parents as 
they chatted with the professors and 
other students chose to let their parents 
go it alone. Wonder why? 

Julie Williams and Beth Powell found comfort in 
friendship during Parents Day.

Intramural s

ing after a long day of classes. 

Intramurals are designed to involve 
students in extra-curricular activities. 
This is a great w/ay to release all the 
stress from a day of classes at Lou-U. 
Some of the sports played in the fall 
were; soccer, basketball, softball, bil- 
liards, table tennis, video game com- 
petition and football. Patten Express 
coach Paul Stokes felt that, "By the 
start of the season we knew we had a 
lot of talent, by mid-season we knew 
we could not be beat, by the end of 
the season we were *1." In the spring 
students again indulged in softball, 
basketball, tennis and other activities. 
Mr. Ervin Williams is the college intra- 
mural director. He writes a newsletter 
called "The Pacesetter" to inform stu- 
dents of upcoming events and scores. 

Patten Express football champions are: Paul

On January 12, 1989, Louisburg Col- 
lege uncovered its four million dollar au- 
ditorium and theatre. This buidling in- 
cludes an auditorium which seats twelve 
hundred and a theatre that seats one 
hundred and eighty. The auditorium is 
the effort of eight years of planning and 
fundraising by the Louisburg College 
Board of Trustees. From the success of 
the auditorium opening, it is easy to see 
how much the auditorium will be uti- 
lized and how it is an enjoyable addition 
to the College.

man dominated team, with only three 
sopjmores returning from last year. Those 
three players were: Rod Williams, Michael

season. Brown led all scorers on the team 
with an average of 17.2 points per game. 
Brown was also the leading rebounder for 
the Hurricanes. But that's not all for the

— Mike de Vente 


At Louisburg College, Student Gov- 
ernment Association is a very impor- 
tant organization. The members work 
hard each year for student rights and 
to make Louisburg College a better 
place to be. This year the SQA has 
reached some very important goals 
such as in Open House, an on-cam- 
pus radio station and a commuter 
lobby. Mike de Vente President of Stu- 
dent Government Association feels 
that another Important duty of the 

SGA is to promote student adminis- 
tration unity by integrating features of 
both generations into on and ofF-cam- 
pus activities. This year the SGA spon- 
sored such activities as a trip to see 
Ramses 11, comedy shows from Char- 
lie Goodnights, We Can Make You 
Laugh Show, a cookout with music 
and the SGA Annual Talent Show. In 
the future SQA would like to increase

After an overwhelming re-

this year, the Peace Group was 
formed by Wade Vickrey. Its 
main purpose is to educate the 
college community about issues 
concerning armed conflict and 
its dehumanizing affects on peo- 
ple. Also, the Peace Group 
would focus on the brutality of 
life in third and fourth world 

countries and to emphasize hu- 
man rights and issues both here 
and abroad. Among the activi- 
ties the Peace Group participat- 
ed in this year are a food drive 
for the needy, a paper recycling 
drive, planting and decorating a 
small pine tree in remember- 
ance of Human Rights Day and 
the Peace Group also sponsored 
a debate on capital punishment. 


On Campus Radio 

next year WQLC will rock the 
Lou-U Campus. Thanks to the SQA, 
Louisburg College will once again 
have an on-campus radio station. 
The radio station is now located in 
the multi-purpose room and is op- 
erational at this time. Mike de 
Vente, president of SQA hopes that 

this radio station can be used for 
both entertainment and education, 
with possibilities of offering a 
broadcast communications class. 
It will definitely be a switch next 
year as the new radio station gets 
into action on campus. 

Students who worked so 
hard to revive WQLC are

Working Hard To Make Ends Meet 

For the 1988-89 Oak there have 
been many changes. Dana Qracie is 
the editor and has put a lot of work 
into this yearbook. When asked, Dana 
Qracie said, "I hope to achieve a dif- 
ferent design in the yearbook this 
year." The class meets every Wednes- 
day night at 6:00 and discusses when 
the deadline of each section is due. It 
is important that they tum in their 
work on time because if they don't, 
the yearbook will be arriving later 
than scheduled. Every group has a 
section editor who helps the students 

Rusty Hurt is working hard to make sure his 
deadline is on time.

hard at work making plans for Hlllman Dorm. 

The Resident Life Council, which is 
better known as RLC, works hard to 
make each dorm life interesting and 
exciting. They try to have fund raisers 
to help pay for ail of the fun-filled ac- 
tivities each dorm tries to have. Beth 
Gamer, President of RLC for Merritt 
Dorm, said, 'RLC gives you the 
chance to meet the people you live 
with and 1 like being involved in dorm 
life." The RLC tries to do special 
events at holidays. For example, for 
Christmas Merritt Dorm had Secert 
Santas; Kenan Dorm had a tie-dyed 
party for their girls.

A hug from a good friend always make things a 
little better. Tony Mills give a hug of excitement 
to Micheal Suits after being crowned Homecom-

Bye-Bye Louisburg College friends for now. the 
year was great! 

You are listening to class notes right? The 
studying is never done as Pier Hickman lis-

During the year of 
1988-89 at Louis- 
burg College, we all 
cried and laughed, 
we had successes 
and learned from 
our failures. As we 
continue on, we will 
pass over our new 
bridge and keep 
looking and dream- 
ing of what is MEXT
